Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.

Students study four units: 1. Changing Awareness of Crime, 2. Criminological Theories, 3. Crime Scene to Courtroom, 4. Crime and Punishment. The focus of the course is on students developing their skills and applying their learning in vocational contexts.
Students studying Criminology can continue their studies at university within a range of linked degree subjects such as Criminology and Criminal Justice, Criminology and Psychology, or Law with Criminology. Alternatively, the qualification allows learners to gain the required understanding and skills to be able to consider employment within some aspects of the criminal justice system, e.g. the National Probation Service, the Courts and Tribunals Service or the National Offender Management Service.
An understanding of criminology is relevant to many job roles within the criminal justice sector, social and probation work, and sociology and psychology.
